Homemade protein ballz

28 Jul

I know protein ball recipes are ten a penny here on the internets and I’ve tried many a ball recipe on Pinterest with varying degrees of success. However, at the weekend I bought some balls from a local store which were A-Maze-Ing and I really wanted to replicate that taste at home without spending £1 a ball <—-eek! They tasted like heaven chocolate marzipan. Mmmmm chocolate marzipan…..

Ok so you can’t really call these balls, more like lumps, and foodie photog i am not!

The basis for any protein ball is usually dried stuff like protein powder, nuts, shredded coconut etc mixed with liquids like coconut oil and nut butters to bind them <—– you’re welcome for this explicit and knowledgable explanation of protein balls. For these balls I decided to use dates as a sweet base, I knew I needed almonds for that marzipan taste and I also added chocolate protein powder.  They turned out pretty flipping yummy if I do say so myself.

The final recipe (this makes a small amount – I’m fickle with flavours and can’t keep eating the same balls day after day)

Half a cup of dates

Half a cup of ground almonds

Big scoop of protein powder

Generous spoonful of smooth almond butter (or enough to bind)

Blitz away and once the mixture looks like bread crumbs form into balls with your hands.

 

enjoy x
